Crowdfunding is a new type of fundraising where you can raise funds for your own personal cause, even if you're not a registered charity.
The page owner is responsible for the distribution of funds raised.
We are raising funds for two main charities based in Sri Lanka and Singapore. As well as love and appreciation from all, donations of £10+ will receive one of our cool wrist bands as a thank you.
**The fountain of Goodness** is a charity in SL set up to help the under privileged communities in the rural parts of the country through a holistic approach.
Before the Tsunami struck in 2004 the charity was set up to provide English and IT lessons to education deprived villagers as well as funding upgrades to their dwellings in the form of electrical lighting running water etc.
When the Tsunami hit, the founder donated his inherited estate to fund an emergency relief center and a Center of excellence to make future developments sustainable.
Since 2004 the original focus in now their target and they are now providing medical clinics, pre-school facilities, IT, business, English, cooking and sewing courses to help the communities develop sustainably. With the civil war now ended, the war torn North of the country will be a significant focus.
**Food From the Heart** is a charity who's key mission is to reach out to the less-fortunate and brighten their lives by alleviating hunger through a food distribution program, and bringing joy through the distribution of toys and birthday celebrations to less fortunate children and families.
The organisation Pimp My Tuk Tuk is in its 3rd year and holds a challenge to travel across the destination country, this year Sri Lanka, in Tuk Tuks to raise money for projects in the country and the above charities. It is funded by the participants so all additional contributions go directly to the good causes.
PMTT has directly funded water treatment plants and solar energy systems as well as smaller donations of toys and gifts along the way as they stop in to meet the communities they are helping.
This fund is to form contributions to the PMTT donation pot which is split between all the good causes it helps.
